What Happens When you Receive 75 Chicks When You Aren’t Ready

Our 75 Cornish Cross meat Chickens arrived a day early, and I’m caught off guard. So, I quickly round up the chiddlers and head to the post office (to pick up the chicks) then it’s time to set up their brooder. (RESOURCES BELOW):

NOTE: The brooder supplies listed ARE the products I use. Well… unless they’ve been discontinued, then I link to a similar one (that I would buy). The links above ARE affiliate links. So, I make 6.5% commission. It’s not that much at this point, but enough to take the family out to each eat couple times a month. YEH! I figured since I’m already linking to the stuff, might as well get a commission. I appreciate your support!
